    Riverdance: The Animated Adventure

    ★★

    For me who is not from Ireland, it is as difficult to join scenes where about a hundred moose dance riverdance as it is in 2022 to make a film about Riverdance at all.

    In addition to the quite a few dance scenes, it's about mourning when the little guy Keeegan in the lead role's grandfather passes away. There's a story of a thief hacked in here too, but all of that is mostly padding between the dance scenes. Keegan…

    ★★★★

    Sorrowful humans in the First World War, depicted in images with enough aesthetics to make the film stand out among other war stories. Alexey (Vladimir Korolev) loses his sight out in the field and instead gets a mission where he can use his hearing.

    His friend Nazarka (Mikhail Buturlov) is supportive (aside from when he’s trying to get laid), but most of the time Alexey must fumble (literally) with his hands and fingers on soldiers faces and barbed wire, to…
